Today was a sad day ~ our oldest chicken, Mrs. Choate died. We are not certain how old she was as she was already a laying hen when we adopted her two years ago Memorial Day.
Mrs. Choate was a Cochin ~ see the pretty feathers on her feet? Her back feathers look like a bustle.
She looked a lot like Rochelle Rochelle but her markings were tighter and she just had a wise look about her.
She was definitely the Queen of the Pecking Order. She ruled the roost and everyone knew it. She could be so very sweet and curious too. We will miss her. Tracee, do you remember this very wise quote you shared with us when you were a little girl?
“The world constantly changes and replenishes itself. That is how life is supposed to work. Things keep living and dying and completing their own unique life cycle, only to be replaced again.” ~ Tracee Harchut
